7:00 am
hello to them. first, matt, as you know, we are following a lot of breaking news this morning. that video of a meteorite coming out of russia, absolutely incredible and frightening. >> this is the kind of thing you expect to see in a weird movie. you can see that meteorite as it's burning, as it streaks across the skies. that's over the euro mountains overnight. about 900 miles east of moscow. seconds later you can hear that loud explosion. >> unfortunately there's been some injuries this morning. let's get to duncan this morning in london. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, savannah. this was up close and big. russia's academy of is russia's sciences said it was ten tons and traveled at3,000 miles an hour. no wonder people were panicking. so streaking across the early morning fire, a burst of light
7:01 am
and an explosion of sound. these unverified pictures show the close shave with a meteorite. locals heard and felt the shock wave of it passing. on the ground, people stunned and unsure of what they had seen were left staring at the thick trail. this man said it lasted three, maybe four seconds. more than 400 are reported injured, many hurt by broken glass. windows popped out and a large part of this factory roof collapsed. this level of damage is rare, but meteorites are common. they're often smaller an burn up as they enter the earth's atmosphere. an asteroid the size of a swimming pool will make the closest recorded pass of earth. closer than some satellites. >> we understand it's going extreme he well and we can say there's no chance of it hitting
7:02 am
the earth. >> reporter: this part of russia, that will be welcome news. some people asking if that asteroid fly-by we're expecting later is somehow linked. scientists say no. they're calling it a cosmic coincidence. savannah? >> thank you. dr. neil degrass-tyson is an astrophysici astrophysicist. >> good morning. >> is there a rare occurrence or just rare that it happened in the populated area and we have the incredible images? >> based on what we have seen in the past this can happen once a decade. in fact in the 1990s there was an air blast that occurred in the air space between india and pakistan. at a sensitive time when they were talking about nuclear armament and knowledge that it
7:03 am
was an air blast helped to diffuse that it was an air strike in progress. perhaps once decade or so. most of earth is water. if this happens over the pacific, no one would see it. >> we'd see it happen in a populated area, had it been a big city like manhattan, right? >> of course. it's a shock wave, basically. the physics of it is it hits the earth's atmosphere and feels like a brick wall to it. because of how fast it is moving. and when you hit a brick wall you basically explode. that's what happened here. exploded in midair. that shock wave shatters glass or anything sort of fragile and breakable over a huge radius. remember the oklahoma city bomb that destroyed the building it hit, but of course much glass was broken in the surrounding area. that's the effect of a shock wave air blast of an explosion of this kind. >> this seems to have come without warning. is this the sort of thing that scientists aren't able to detect in the atmosphere? >> yeah. below a certain size asteroid, they come in without warning. exactly.
7:04 am
above a certain size, a radar can detect them. the military certainly has a smaller threshold for what they can see coming in. by the time you see them coming in, there's no defense against them. something this size is not going to render the human species exstint. something large enough we could. that's what we're focusing on at this moment. >> let me have you weigh in on this, you don't think it has any relation shthe asteroid supposed to brush by earth today? >> yeah, it's going to dip below of the orbits so it's a buzz cut to earth. that will happen so many hours from now. by my read of the dynamics of the solar system, this just happens to be a coincidence. if it were not a coincidence you would see many more of these between now and when that big one comes by. because what happens is you get an asteroid that breaks up from the gravitational stress as it
7:05 am
nears bodies during its life and so the asteroid becomes a train of objects that would then come hit one right after the after. this is so many hours before the next asteroid will hit. it's unlikely. >> all right. thank you for the science lesson this friday. >> we'll survive the day. i promise. >> good to hear that. matt, now back to you. >> words to live by literally. thank you very much. another big story we are covering, the ordeal is over for the passengers aboard that crippled cruise ship in the gulf of mexico. the relief could be seen on their faces as they streamed off overnight. nbc's janet chanly has more on that. >> reporter: good morning. the nightmare is over. it was after midnight when the last person stepped off of the cruise ship. for everything the passengers have been through, tired, hungry in need of a shower, the mood was almost festive. then, very anxious to get home
7:06 am
as quickly as possible. finally, their ship came in. after five days of misery, a night of relief, passengers streaming off the carnival triumph carrying their luggage. tired. hungry, but mostly just happy to be back. >> glad to be on ground, everybody! >> united states, hey, nothing better. >> reporter: greeting loved ones with kisses, smiles and tears of joy. unprepared for temperatures in the 40s, many of the wayward vacationers wore bath robes to keep warm. buses took some to hotels. others opted to drive all night, impatient to get home. meanwhi meanwhile, cell phone images painted an agonizing week they left behind. a tent city set up on the pool deck, makeshift beds everywhere. then the bathroom situation. >> it was like being in a floating porta potty. >> but there was universal
7:07 am
praise for the staff on board. >> they were great. >> reporter: including braise from the boss. >> i want to thank them very much. >> reporter: he apologized again. >> clearly we failed in this particular case. >> reporter: then went on board to apologize directly to passengers. >> i'd like to personally thank you for your patience, understanding and cooperation. >> reporter: but not everyone was in a mood to accept. and for some, their first cruise is their last. >> never again. never with carnival. never again. >> reporter: and at the 7:00 hour in the pacific time zone, you can see the triumph quickly disappearing behind me. it is out of service. however, they are of moving it to a nearby shipyard here in mow peel and that's where it will stay for a couple of months. we have the electric supply truck moving behind us. they'll do the investigation here and refurbishment here. carnival says it will go back in service. matt, back to you. >> janet, thank you. earlier this morning i
7:08 am
talked to triumph passengers julie billings and others and asked them how they're feeling. >> so much better to be back. >> glad to be back. >> have you guys had a chance to take the world's longest, hottest shower yet? >> i did that last night. that was the first thing that we did. i got the kids in the shower and then it was my turn. >> we seemed to miss that. >> you were also traveling with a friend, lorraine and she had a tough experience. she broke her ankle. talk about the circumstances. i know you nursed her for the last couple of days. >> yeah. she took a nasty fall. the ship was dark and they were pushing us with the tug boats and so the ship was moving a lot and jerking and just so happened she got up to use the bathroom at that time and the ship jerked and she couldn't see.
7:09 am
she lost her footing and the paramedics came in from the medical center, they picked her up and her foot was actually just hanging off of her leg. so she's in pretty rough shape right now. >> yeah. i understand she's going to face surgery. you say. i don't want to get too graphic here. in the last several days of the cruise, going to the bathroom amounted to using a bag. talk about your experience again. i'm not looking for the gory details how was rough was it over the last couple of days for the both of you? >> it was -- it was really rough. it was -- >> it was bad. >> it was like post natural disaster, but stuck on a boat with 3,200 other people and those poor workers trying to clean up after everyone and deal with everyone freaking out. >> you know, i'm glad you said that, those poor workers. yeah, because i have heard a lot of praise for the crew of this ship and not only were you as
7:10 am
passengers dealing with difficult conditions, but they were dealing with the same thing and having to care for your needs as well. talk to me about them. >> right. i mean, they literally they're on the same boat. they're in the same boat with all of the same issues that we had to deal with. but they didn't have to just sit around and get through it. they had to work and try to keep everybody as comfortable as possible. clean up after the lack of sewage and it was just horrible working conditions for them. they had to put in extra hours and kept a smile on their face. they were amazing. >> their cabins were in the lower deck, so a lot of them were flooded. so you could walk through the ship and see them sleeping on the tables and on the floor and the hallways. some were sharing mattresses if they could find one that maybe was not so clean that somebody had already tossed because they had been soiled and so they
7:11 am
would stack up blankets and towels that were used to lay on that. they were -- they're amazing. they just smiled and sang and danced and they were awesome. >> well, i think they deserve a lot of congratulations as well. the ceo of carnival has issued an apology. ladies, do you accept the apology, would you cruise again? >> not with carnival. >> not yet. >> not yet. >> not yet. not yet. i accept his apology. i know that it meant a lot for lorraine. he came and he actually carried her luggage to the ambulance last night for her. so that meant a lot. but not yet. >> yeah. it will be tough to get back on a boat. >> that's very, very understandable. we're happy you're on dry land and cleaned up. thanks for taking the time to talk to us, ladies. >> thank you. >> thank you. >> all right. and now here's savannah. >> we are learning more this morning about the murder case against olympic hero oscar
7:12 am
pistorius, the double amputee who made history at the london games was formerly charged in the south african court this morning with the shooting death of his girlfriend. nbc's michelle kaczynski is there for us. good morning. >> reporter: hi, savannah. oscar pistorius sobbed openly in court, buried his face in his hands as the charge of murder was read against him. prosecutors called this premeditated. his agent just released a statement saying they dispute the alleged murder in the strongest terms and that pistorius sends his deepest sympathies to his girlfriend's family. >> pistorius -- >> reporter: olympian oscar pistorius keeps his head down. now shielding his face from cameras to and from court. the world's press is around him, charged with the murder of his girlfriend reeva steenkamp shot in the head and the body at
7:13 am
pistorius' well-secured home around 4:00 a.m. on thursday. a 9 millimeter again was registered to him. neighbors had heard shouting earlier that night and there had been prior domestic disturbances there, but wouldn't elaborate. he detailed his need for security saying he kept a pistol by his bed, a machine gun and bat as backup. >> he talked about a number of incidents in which he had to get his gun and come downstairs and the next thing i knew he said, hey, do you want to go to the gun range? >> reporter: in 2011, he proudly tweeted his shooting prowess at the gun range. steenkamp, a cover girl, law school grad, soon to be reality show contestant -- >> i'm going home with sort of a sweet taste in my mouth. >> reporter: was set to give a valentine's day talk about empowering women. instead, her heartbroken family spoke about her. >> her future has been cut short and i do say shy' with the angels.
7:14 am
>> reporter: the world is used to seeing oscar pistorius winning on the blades that earned him the nicknames blade runner. the fastest man on no legs. he made history running. now, emotional, accused and staying in jail. he'll be in jail until tuesday bond hearing. now, early on, there were the suggestions could this have been mistaken identity? could steenkamp have thought to be an intruder? and there were reports of shoutingshou shouting at the home earlier that evening. >> michelle, thank you. it as you can tell a busy morning. natalie has the other headlines. good morning to you. >> good morning. a partisan standoff in washington as senate republicans block a vote to confirm nominee chuck hagel. nbc's chief white house correspondent chuck todd has the

very latest. >> reporter: good morning. president obama is and thi stan chuck hagel. as the former senate nominees put up the road block not only to kill the nomination, but also delay it. the yays are 58, nays are 40. one senator announced present. >> reporter: with that senate vote, chuck hagel came short of a 60-vote, and stalling his confirmation vote by two weeks. president obama was emphatic in his defense of the em battled nominee. >> chuck hagel who richly it was to get a vote on the floor of the senate will be confirmed as our defense secretary. it's unfortunate that this kind of politics intrudes at a time when i'm still presiding over a war in afghanistan. >> reporter: some republicans want more time because they say
7:16 am
hagel hasn't provided enough information on speeches he gave in the last five years. others want more information from the president about benghazi. ultimately, hagel's issues with the former gop colleagues are personal. >> there's a lot of ill-will towards senator hagel because when he was a republican he attacked president bush mercilessly and was very ant ti his own party. >> leon panetta is still secretary of defense and he'll stay on until chuck hagel or anybody else is confirmed to replace him. natalie? >> good to know. chuck todd, thank you. now let's head to wall street. cnbc's mary thompson at the new york stock exchange. look like warren buffett likes his heinz on the cheeseburgers. >> he usually likes them with a cherry coke.

to do the things that i wanted. my doctor diagnosed it as fibromyalgia -- thought to be the result of over-active nerves that cause chronic, widespread pain. lyrica is believed to calm these nerves. i learned lyrica can provide significant relief from fibromyalgia pain. so now, i can do more of the things i enjoy. lyrica is not for everyone. it may cause serious allergic reactions or suicidal thoughts or actions. tell your doctor right away if you have these, new or worsening depression, or unusual changes in mood or behavior. or swelling, trouble breathing, rash, hives, blisters, changes in eyesight including blurry vision, muscle pain with fever, or tired feeling. common side effects are dizziness, sleepiness, weight gain and swelling of hands, legs and feet. don't drink alcohol while taking lyrica. don't drive or use machinery until you know how lyrica affects you. those who have had a drug or alcohol problem may be more likely to misuse lyrica. with less pain, i'm feeling better with lyrica. ask your doctor if lyrica is right for your fibromyalgia pain.

7:25 am
someone calls about a violent crime that requires a s.w.a.t. response or something similar. san mateo police defending their response saying reports like these are taken very seriously. however, that woman says it's a prank that could get people seriously hurt or even killed. >> something bad could have happened. there are so many guns on you. someone could have made a mistake and thought i was doing something that was threatening. it was frightening. >> so far no arrests have been made in this case. as for those tougher laws being talked about in sacramento, they include holding those convicted responsible for all costs linked to the response and it includes more time in jail. right now why are a lot of people smiling around here and doing this? it's because it's friday and look at that. >> and wait until i show you the temperatures today, jon. beautiful day shaping up. you can see this is from high atop san bruno mountain

the boston alarm company band playing along. good morning. i'm savannah guthrie along with matt lauer. >> technically speaking, back in the day, those two groups wouldn't have been at the same cocktail party, but that's okay. they've come together for us this morning. and we've got a great, great crowd as well, gathered here at spaniel hall marketplace. they've been gathered since 4:30 in the morning. we truly appreciate that. we're happy to be here from new york city. something you may not know, savannah, new york yankees fan. >> oh, no! don't believe it. >> i'm kidding. i'm kidding. >> you know, we all know that you are the yankees fan, but apparently your death wish extends to me. needless to say, here in boston, people are wild for their sports teams, including the red sox.
7:30 am
we'll meet three people who take the term rivalry to a whole new level. >> they certainly do. each and every year, when tourists come here they find a vibrant place known for its culture, its history and, yeah, those red sox. the city on the hill. the cradle of liberty. the hub. >> this is boston. >> this is boston. >> this is boston! >> this is boston. >> boston, massachusetts, the largest city in new england. a unique blend of old and new, skyscrapers nestled next to historic landmarks, marketplaces lining cobblestone streets. these very streets tell the story of the american revolution. each year more than 4 million tourists walk the freedom trail, 2 1/2 mile hike through time, encompassing nearly four centuries of history. paul revere's house, old north church, the site of the boston

7:32 am
the most iconic sporting venues in the world. >> that's the grown monster right there. isn't that weird? >> i can't take you anywhere. we have a new yorker here! >> covering 48 square miles and surrounded by a beautiful harbor, boston is a city of charm, a place where the past truly comes alive. it is a fabulous, fabulous city. coming up, we'll learn how to speak with a real boston accent, sample some chowder, right? first let's go back to new york where al has a check of the weather outside studio 1a. >> i can see in that shot there that they still have snow piles left. may get a little more this morning. arctic air returning in minneapolis. 18. 23 in alpena. afternoon highs up to 15 degrees

7:34 am
as we get into monday and tuesday, we're really going to drop your temps and bring in showers. it looks like wednesday will see the most moisture come through. >> that's your latest weather. now back to savannah in boston. >> al, thanks. the passengers of that disabled carnival cruise ship may finally be back on dry land this morning. given the conditions on board, some people could face a number of health concerns in the coming days. nbc's chief medical editor nancy snyderman is also in mobile this morning. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, savannah. the carnival triumph is docked behind me. a lot of people are on dry land. as we talked to people last night and they explained what conditions were, one of the big concerns is that over the next couple of days people may still come down with illnesses just because of what they were exposed to. this is, in essence, a floating petrie dish, if you will. >> what are some of the more
7:35 am
serious conditions they might be subject to, given the circumstances they were facing on that boat? >> because they were exposed to so much raw sewage, the real concern is stomach cramps, nausea and vomiting. it can take up to three to five days and sometimes in children up to ten days to exhibit. so although everyone told us they got no instructions from the crew or the people who owned the liners, one thing public health people are saying is that for anyone who experiences any of those symptoms, see your doctor and not self medicate. most of these things are limited but there were young and children and elderly on the boat. some people were taken off in wheelchairs last night and some put into ambulances. it is very important for the young and elderly, who could become very dehydrated. >> i wonder about food poisoning. food was in very short supply. who knows how it was stored. i don't think there was much in
7:36 am
the way of refrigeration on board. is that a concern? >> the refrigeration went early. everyone said milk was not just room temperature, it was warm. so a lot of people stayed away from food products. a lot of people were, interesting, cleaning their own bathrooms, asking for bleach. they were cleaning their own bathrooms because the staff just couldn't get to their own quarters. of course, as we know, a lot of people were sleeping on decks. food poisoning would have hit early, within hours to a couple of days. those people who did get sick were isolated from everyone else on the boat and now the real risk as a delayed infection is the sewage. you're right. double whammy. food exposure first and fecal exposure second. >> a lot for people to deal with. i know a lot of people are happy to be back on dry land. thank you for your information this morning. >> reporter: you bet, savannah. only the top die-hard sports fans. you will not believe some of the

we're back with more of our friday field trip here in boston, faneuil hall marketplace. we've shown you some of the must-see sites of this city. >> now we're going to see the quirky side of boston.
8:36 am
for that we turn to ron mott who makes boston his home. >> good morning, ron. >> it's hard to believe. it's been 15 months already. since i spent so much time on the road covering politics, it's only now just starting to live like one of the locals. >> reporter: ever heard of candle pin bowling? me either. it's the boston/new england pastime. shoes, check. candle, check. candle? >> time to roll. that is not how it's done. invented in wasser, massachusetts, pins like candles, smaller balls. hitting them much harder than it looks. >> that's hard to hit. >> reporter: even for a pro like peter flynn. >> no one's ever rolled a
8:37 am
perfect 300 and that's perfectly okay. >> it's as new england as you can get so it is such a tradition here. >> reporter: from the alley to the ice. this is boston common, america's oldest park. of course, if you spend any time in boston you'll wind up on a pair of skates. the park has been here since 1634. the ice rink is relatively new. and for a newcomer like me. >> you know how to walk, right? >> reporter: barely. a helpful guide never herds. bostonians and visitors alike hop onto the frozen pond every chance they get. >> winters are tough up here and so we make the best of it. skating and skiing are two ways. >> you have to keep straight. >> reporter: no two ways about it. >> you're doing okay. he's standing on his feet. not falling backwards. side to side. >> reporter: the bruins won't be calling. now a lot of cities think it, but boston is at the center of the world.
8:38 am
no place is that more evident than here at the mactarian. a hidden gem tucked away in the city. if i can remember where in the world i parked my car. >> got a little work to do on the accent. the longer i live here, the more i love it. it's a great place to live. >> good to see you, ron. thanks very much. >> you bet. >> when we come back, our friday field trip rolls on. we're going to sample some great food, but first this is "today" on nbc.
8:39 am
8:40 am
>> we're back now on a friday morning in the heart of boston, massachusetts. you can't come to this city without sampling some local food. >> we're going to make an easy one-pot dish, just a few simple steps. chef michael shoud here, a chef
8:41 am
at a couple of restaurants here. >> where do we get started ? >> it doesn't really matter what time of day it is. you have the dubious honor of cracking open -- >> dubious? that's huge. >> local shellfish. i started little carrots, onions, celery, garlic. little local cod in here. savannah, i've got a sharp knife here. >> you're going to give savannah a sharp knife? >> yeah. >> sorry. don't tempt me. >> the hospital is right around the corner from here. we'll be okay. >> how am i slicing it? >> i would like a little beer. >> i'll take a beer. >> all right. >> if you can pass me some of the shellfish. >> i've got it coming. >> hold on. i've got the knife! >> thank you so much.
8:42 am
what we're going to do with this. >> i'm just slicing. >> put this in the order they're going to cook. clams are first. >> no cream in this? >> no cream. >> tomato based. >> it's a dish from italy, strong italian population in boston right by the north end. this has some local clams, mussels, shrimp. i'll ask you to take that tomato and put that right in here. >> just pour it all in? >> most of it. about three-quarters of that. i'm going to give you this back, matt, if you don't mind. >> what is this, tomato sauce? >> pureed italian tomatoes or canned. it's cold here. we don't always have the best weather to grow tomatoes. canned tomatoes are always consistent. >> a dash of everything? >> good pinch. always season it later if you want. rosemary and thyme in here. if there's something you don't like or you can't get locally, substitute whatever you want. what's nice about this is putting the local cod in, it
8:43 am
thinkens the sauce as it cobbings. beautiful local bread. we have a red flannel hash. >> what is that? >> it's an interesting idea. red and gold beets, potatoes. this was a way to utilize last night's corn beef and cabbage. i tried to rup update it by not cooking it to death. i did homemade pastrami to give it some spice. so this cooks for about -- each dish, each component of it, a minute or two until it starts to open up. you don't want the clams and mussels to cook forever. they sort of shrink up then and get tough. you just want them to open up until it looks like this. beautiful shellfish stew. >> that's beautiful. >> served with beautiful grilled bread. >> you grill your bread. >> or put ton the bottom and it
8:44 am
can be a thickener as well. it's a one-pot dish. chopped parsley? >> i will. will you tell us about these cupcakes? >> instead of boston cream donuts we did boston cream cupcakes. chocolate with boston cream on the inside. how does that taste? >> this is really good. >> i'm glad you had the version he made and not my version. thank you very much. >> thank you. >> great to have you here. coming up, we'll get some music. the dropkick murphys are here. first this is "today" on nbc.

8:58 am
back now with a special hour of "today" on this friday, february 15g9, 2013. it's called help me i'm stuck. if you feel like you're in a rut we'll try to help you out this morning. i'm willie geist joined by natalie morales, al roker and our special guest, donny
8:59 am
deutsch. >> never in a rut. >> wearing the bracelets, everything else will fall into place. >> that's a man with a daughter. >> every one of these comes from one of my three daughters. >> sweet. next hour we'll introduce you to people who, maybe like you, may feel stuck. from changes in your career, your love life, your style, we've brought in experts like donny. we put up a poll on interesting to see the results. we just tallied them. we asked where in your life do you feel the most stuck? in your work, love life or appearance? 39% said appearance, 37% said at work and 24% said in their love life. are you surprised by those numbers? >> i would have thought a little heavier at -- i wouldn't have thought appearance is at the top. >> appearance is at the top. >> i would not have thought
9:00 am
that. >> appearance you can change. >> maybe can't lose weight. i think it's mostly about weight and health related. interesting thing about what i would love to say to all our viewers in any category, you can overthink all this stuff to death versus just saying, you know, why not me? i deserve to be -- mumbo jumbo, i deserve to have that great next job or great love. you can't be afraid of failure. just go for it. the worst that happens, it doesn't work out. just everything that has to happen, you can't be afraid of taking a shot and missing. the real failure is to not give it a shot. >> you have to put yourself out there. if you don't put yourself out there, you never know. >> for some people it works. you have a job. the check comes every two weeks. you don't love that job but it's steady. to go out on that limb it's difficult. >> it is difficult. one of the segments i'm doing later on in the show, you can hedge it. everybody at home has some thought about their next dream. you don't have to blow up your life to do it. start doing something on the
9:01 am
weekends. >> spark start. >> that's what he said, look, he was working a day job but at night -- >> sales. >> he was working on his novel. and, obviously -- >> i want to say to everybody, at the end of the show, make a decision right now that whatever you take away from this show, your body, love life, that you're going to do t it has to start with i'm doing it. that's it. everything else is mumbo jumbo. make that decision now before you watch the rest of the show. >> appearance, your love life, your style, all that is going to come up throughout this hour. take two, the art of reinvention. speaking of reinventing yourself, a couple of famous names who have done that recently, ben affleck, showered with awards for directing "argo." i think he called it the 2003 year. >> phase. >> where he was with j.lo, in the tabloids every week, came out with a bunch of movies that were bombs. and he said to himself, i'm going to step out of this life. he said i'm not going to act anymore. i'm going to focus on directing. a classic move of reinvention. it's worked out great for him.
9:02 am
>> the town just put him on the map as a director. >> and a couple of other movies. "argo" most recently. some are saying he is the hottest director to work with in hollywood. he had a skill set but perhaps needed some failure in his life to make him go after that dream. >> by the way, not a slacker in the acting category. >> no. >> great example, though, of taking a competency -- not straying completely away from it. let's say somebody at home is a bank teller and they're bored with it and they want to start to do party planning. it seems different but you're dealing with people all day long. you have your people skills. i guarantee you can find anything in what you're doing now that can have a shade of what you want -- take affleck. directing? no, he wasn't a director, but he was around it. >> we've got a little bit of his speech. go he got this award for directing bafta. this is a second act for me.
9:03 am
you've given me that. this industry has given me that. i'm so grateful and proud and i just want to dedicate this anyone else out there who's trying to get their second act. you can do it. another actor, nicholas sparks, and another author who wrote "the fifty shades of grey" she said it was her mid-life crisis writ large. she just started writing steamy book. >> whoa all know what happened next, starting the 2012 craze, a top-selling book. >> based on donny deutsch. >> his love life. >> 65 million copies of this book. >> unbelievable. >> pretty good mid life crisis. >> we should all be so lucky, right? take three, we've all been through this. >> we have been. >> in one form or another. professional or permanently? >> just getting started in this field in journalism. coming out of school, i couldn't find a job that actually paid me a salary. i was recruited by a bank at the
9:04 am
time, was in a management training program. i was in finance for two years, thought i completely left my dream behind. >> look at this. wait a minute now. >> but then i kind of kept going. i persevered, got a job at court tv and then finally that led to news 12 the bronx. that was my first on-air gig. >> the old -- >> look at that. >> kerchief. >> i was a flight attendant. >> hiding a hickey or something? >> oh, nice. >> somewhere -- really? you were mr. smooth back -- >> just an excuse to show that. >> mr. smooth. >> what about that? >> mr. smooth in atlanta? >> i was totally professional. working at cnn in atlanta behind the camera, not doing what i wanted to be doing. you have to know at some point it's not going to happen here. >> yeah. >> i picked myself up and moved to new york city and looked for new opportunities. you have to be able to look yourself in the mirror and say it's time to move on. it may not be comfortable but you have to pull the plug. >> that's right. al, how about you?
9:05 am
>> i was very fortunate. i started doing weekend weather when i was a sophomore in college. that kind of put me on that path. just transition wise, still i was worried about getting enough physical activity and i just made the decision about nine months ago, i want to bike to work. i just decided i'm going to do it. i really feel like it's made a change in my life. the days i don't do it, i miss it. i've got some sort of activity and i'm taking charge of being healthy. >> makes for a fun commute, too. >> it does. and you learn a new language. >> donny, have you been stuck? >> early on i was working for my dad. he fired me. it was actually the best thing that ever happened to me. and my dad was going to sell the company. i knew he really didn't want to, but he was like, i wasn't working out. i went to him and said, dad, don't do it. i want to come back. i want to -- taking on the responsibility of telling my dad don't sell -- like give up that opportunity. it just brought something out in me. i needed more than just doing it for me. not that i did it for him but i
9:06 am
needed to know i made that commitment. sometimes you have to do what i call put a stake in the ground where there's no margin of failure. that's what happened to me. the game changer for me, i was maybe afraid of having children. i had them later in life. it's been the greatest joy. the very thing sometimes you're most afraid at gives you the most reward. i've gotten more pleasure and i think i'm better at that than anything. walk right into what you're afraid of. the irony is that it's probably what you'll be best at. >> deemed the better late than never club. >> bltn club. stick around, donny. you'll give some budding entrepreneurs some advice. before that, natalie has a look at the headlines. danger from outer space when a ten-ton meteorite streaked across the sky and landed in a remote part of russia, 90 miles east of russia. injured some 500 people there, causing shockwaves. it is not related, experts say,
